Create your life legacy. Reduce your tax burden.
40 Days for Life started in the grassroots and is proud to be the largest pro-life grassroots in the world. God has taken this effort from 1 city to around the world because of thousands of monthly donors, most of whom participate in 40 Days for Life. Monthly donations have kept this lifesaving work growing despite economic ups and downs. Just $10 per month on the front lines of our culture will be multiplied so please consider becoming a monthly donor which allows us to focus more on our mission and less on fundraising.

Other Ways to Support 40 Days for Life
There are many ways for charitable donors to reduce their tax burdens. Many people have appreciated assets such as stock, mutual funds, etc., which can be ideal charitable gifts for many reasons. You may want to consider a charitable donation of your appreciated assets, which will avoid capital gains tax and also qualify you for a tax deduction equal to the value of the assets as of the date of the gift.
To learn more about the tax advantages of gifted stock and gifts from retirement accounts, please contact us at LifeLegacy@40daysforlife.com or call 888-543-3316 ext. 1.
Your donated assets can also appreciate further in the fund with no capital gains tax to you, and you can continue to provide support for many years. To learn more about the tax advantages of estate planning, please contact us at LifeLegacy@40daysforlife.com or call 888-543-3316 ext. 1.
Retirement Account Gifts
Some retirees don't realize the huge tax savings if they donate all, or a portion of, their required minimum distribution (RMD) directly to charity. It's called a qualified charitable distribution or QCD. You can also make charitable distributions directly from an IRA or other retirement account before RMDs begin. The donations are simply mailed from a retirement account to the charity. To use this tax-saving option contact your broker or email LifeLegacy@40daysforlife.com or call 888-543-3316.
40 Days for Life is an internationally coordinated 40-day campaign that aims to end abortion locally through prayer and fasting, community outreach, and a peaceful all-day vigil in front of abortion businesses.
